Please see the parent T1 for a description of the problem space.
Two separate considerations;
* With cloning the KDE PIM repositories from their original locations over to our environment, pushes are not possible.
Without cloning the KDE PIM repositories from their original locations over to our environment, the branching policy is arbitrary and our copy would be incomplete (this is what we currently do).
